Connect with Amalie
I grew up on a small Caribbean island where I spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure.
I was an aspiring writer from a young age, and my first taste of publication came when a poem I wrote at the age of twelve titled 'The Candle' was published in a University of Warwick journal. At fifteen, I received a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition).I graduated Summa Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa from Colby College, where I was cited for research and criticism in Raffael Scheck’s article, 'German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic,' and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. I also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge at A-level, as well as a certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France.
Travelling the globe, I have worked as a research assistant, marketing representative, teen speaker and global sales executive.
